CNN Radio Anchor Killed In Accident

CNN Radio anchor Stan Case has passed away following a motor vehicle accident in Alabama on Tuesday. Mr Case's wife, a writer at CNN was also involved in the accident and remains in hospital. As CNN reports:

"Stan was a news anchor for CNN Radio and a mainstay of the network since he joined CNN in 1985," said Jim Walton, president of CNN Worldwide. "He was a fine journalist, a leader in our organization and, as anyone who had the privilege of knowing him will tell you, a great guy."

Case's wife, Angela Stiepel Case, was injured, according to a family friend, Merrell Waring. She remained hospitalized Wednesday.

Case is a writer at CNN, where she has worked for more than 20 years.

Tyler Moody, vice president of CNN Radio, said news of Stan Case's death caused "terrible sadness" for him and his colleagues.

"Our thoughts now are for his wife Angi's recovery, and his family during this difficult time. For over 26 years, Stan was our friend first and colleague second. He will be missed."

CNN says local police have not released details of the accident as an investigation continues.

CNN Observations extends our sympathies to Mr. Case's family, friends and work colleagues.
